LIFE-STUDY OF ISAIAH

MESSAGE TWENTY-TWO

CHRIST AS THE SERVANT OF JEHOVAH

(1)

AS TYPIFIED
BY CYRUS THE KING OF PERSIA AND ISRAEL
AND
AS A COVENANT FOR THE PEOPLE
AND A LIGHT FOR THE NATIONS

Scripture Reading: Isa. 41—42; Acts 3:26; Ezra 1:2a; Acts 5:31; Rev. 1:5; Isa. 49:8b; Heb. 7:22; Isa. 49:6b; Matt. 4:13-16; Luke 4:18; John 9:14; Matt. 12:18-20

In Isaiah 41—66 Christ is revealed as the Servant of Jehovah in the most thorough and complete way. Since Jehovah is the Triune God, Christ as the Servant of Jehovah is the Servant of the Triune God.

This section of Isaiah uses three persons as types of Christ as the Servant of Jehovah: Isaiah the prophet, Cyrus king of Persia, and Israel. These three types are the key to understanding this portion of the Word.

I. CHRIST AS THE SERVANT OF JEHOVAH

A. As Typified by Cyrus the King of Persia

In Isaiah 41:1-7 Christ is typified by Cyrus the king of Persia.

1. Raised Up by Jehovah

Cyrus was raised up by Jehovah (vv. 2a, 25a; Acts 3:26).

2. Calling upon the Name of Jehovah

Isaiah 41:25b indicates that Cyrus called upon the name of Jehovah.

3. To Subdue the Nations
and Have Dominion over the Kings

Cyrus was raised up by Jehovah to subdue the nations and have dominion over the kings (vv. 2b, 25c; Ezra 1:2a; Acts 5:31a; Rev. 1:5a).

Noise Words

Common words, such as "and", "is", "but", and "the", also known as noise words, are bypassed in a search. The search string, the Spirit & who, would result in an error since who, which stands by itself, is a noise word. The following is a list of noise words:

$, a, also, an, and, another, any, are, as, at, be, because, been, being, both, but, by, came, can, did, do, each, for, has, had, he, have, her, here, him, himself, his, how, if, in, into, is, it, like, make, me, might, much, my, of, on, or, our, out, over, said, should, since, some, still, such, take, than, that, the, their, them, then, there, these, they, this, those, to, too, very, was, way, we, well, were, what, where, which, while, who, with, would, you, your

Ranking

Rank is a value from 0 to 1000 indicating how closely a match scored or ranked against the original search string. Rank values are affected by the following factors:

  1. The total number of occurrences of the original search words/phrases in a portion of a book.
  2. Content that includes the search words in close proximity to each other are ranked above those that do not. Therefore, a portion of a book that has the search words in close proximity may have a higher ranking than another portion of a book that has a higher hit count but the words are not in close proximity to one another. Therefore, we also include a search word hit count for reference.
  3. The rank values are relative to each other. Therefore, it is not possible to interpret the RANK value as a percentage or group the rank values into high/medium/low ranges. Think of rank as a method to order the results for a specific search.

Search Scope

Include All Word Forms

This option breaks out the search string into its individual words and generates all conjugations and declensions for each word in the search phrase. A search on the word, dwell, would search for dwell, dwelling, dwelling's, dwells, dwelt, and dwelled.

There is no need to use ^ (inflectional search) or * (prefix search) when using the Include all word forms search scope.

Specified Word Forms

This option searches for exact matches of the specified words or phrases used in the search string. Use of ^ (inflectional search) with a particular word in the search string will broaden the search for that given word in that all conjugations and declensions for that word will be searched. Similarly, use of * (prefix search) with a particular word in the search string will broaden the search for that given word in that all words with that prefix will be searched as well.

Note

Common words, such as "and", "is", "but", and "the", also known as noise words, are bypassed in a search. A list of all noise words is as follows:

$, about, after, all, also, an,and, another, any, are, as, at, be, because, been, before, being, between, both, but, by, came, can, come, could, did, do, each, for, from, get, got, has, had, he, have, her, here, him, himself, his, how, if, in, into, is, it, like, make, many, me, might, more, most, much, must, my, never, now, of, on, only, or, other, our, out, over, said, same, see, should, since, some, still, such, take, than, that, the, their, them, then, there, these, they, this, those, through, to, too, under, up, very, was, way, we, well, were, what, where, which, while, who, with, would, you, your
